This year marks the 26th running of the Rottnest Marathon as part of the Goodlife Rottnest Running Festival.

As a destination marathon, we have been recognised the world over as a unique place to run an event, from the pristine beaches and endless views, to the ever appealing and photogenic quokka, Rottnest definitely has something on offer to the whole family.

We are proud members of the Association of International Marathons & Distance Races (AIMS) and all races are IAAF / AIMS certified accurate.

On Sunday, 16 June 2019, we will yet again be sending runners on their way to complete either the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and the ever popular Quokka Dash for kids under 4 years. There is something for every competitor with event supporters chipping in the following products for every entrant:

  • Goodlife Towel
  • Mizuno Event Tee
  • Running Warehouse $25.00 voucher
  • Rocktape Keep Cup

At 6.50am the infamous bagpipes will start to echo throughout Heritage Common, a sight not to be missed.

At 7.00am the gun will be fired for the 26th time and marathon runners will depart with all events to follow:
